I think, we should think…
What make nations worth nothing?
This question has been haunting me
since I began to think.
Think! I don’t know,
Why every time I come across this word,
I just can’t pass it by.
And every time I ponder over ‘thinking’,
my retina is covered by an image of someone
holding 9mm barrel on my head.
That image is just not a .jpg picture,
I can zoom into it and see every detail of that person vividly.
I am not good at adjectives.
Or, I could tell you: what I see.
In the Orwell’s words, it is the ‘thought-crime’.
And beware; there are super-magnifying telescope
and binoculars watching you.
But, that has not stopped me from ‘thinking’.
The power of thought is explosive.
Books can be bombs.
Pen can be sniper.
Pages can be the graveyard of empires.
